        A View of the Common Fishing Place on the Arno without St. Fredians Gate at Florence

      London.: R. Sayer.. 1750.. Copperplate engraving, handcolored, plate mark 11 3/4 x 17 1/4 inches on sheet 14 1/4 x 21 1/2 inches. Faint toning to paper edge (not affecting image), printer's crease at lower edge, very good condition. Giuseppe Zocchi (Joseph Zocchi) (1711 or 1717 to 1767) was an Italian painter and printmaker, known for his impressive views of Florence, Italy. A collection of engravings of the views was published in 1744 under the title Scelta di XXIV vedute delle principali contrade, piazze, chiese, e palazzi della citta di Firenze, with subsequent later editions. This 1750 British copperplate engraving after a Zocchi view has rather crude but likely contemporaneous hand coloring, the skies being embellished with a strong gouache blue. The publication line beneath the title reads: London Printed for R. Sayers Map & Printseller opposite Fetter Lane Fleet Street. ?- And J. Boydell Engraver at the Unicorn the Corner of Queen Street Cheapside. .

        Plaidoyer de Mr. Freydier avocat a Nismes, contre l'introduction de Cadenas, ou Ceintures de chastete

      Montpellier: Augustin-Françous Rochard, 1750. First Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. 8vo (185 × 110 mm), pp. xxxvii, [1] (blank). Woodcut fleuron to title. Title lightly spotted. Preserved in 19th-century boards, green morocco spine label rubbed. First Edition of this highly curious work, containing legal arguments of an actual 18th-century trial concerning the forced use of chastity belts; it remains one of the most bizarre trials of sexual jealousy. Even in the 19th-century this first edition of 1750 was quite unobtainable. The importance of this work, and the rarity of the first edition of it, merited a reprint by Jules Gay, the great bibliographer of pornography and human sexuality, in 1863. Gay's edition contained a preface (unsigned, but by the great French bibliographer Gustave Brunet) in which is claimed: "There exists few trials as bizarre as this one, and we believe that the case involving Master Freydier remains unparalleled in the annals of legal literature." THE CASE AGAINST PIERRE BERLHE (age 36) was brought by Freydier, a lawyer at Nimes, on behalf of 18-year old Marie Lajon. Berlhe had raped and kidnapped the young woman, subsequently imprisoning her and forcing her to wear a chastity belt while he was away on his travels. After Miss Lajon, escaped she lodged a complaint with the civic authorities in Nimes, and retained the counsel of Nimes attorney Freydier (his first name is not recorded). The lawyer here describes in considerable detail the chastity belt in question, while embellishing his legal argument with obscure references to Genesis, Plato, Saint Jerome, Saint Isidore, and others. The outcome of the trial is unknown, but Freydier clearly used it as a platform for what has been called an ?"érudition déplacée?" (Gay). Gay and others cite this 1750 Montpellier edition as the first. The BnF catalogue records a unique, undated folio edition from Toulouse which was not known to Gay or Brunet. Gay notes that copies of our edition are known with 3 added plates, but it was issued as text alone, as here. OCLC does not locate any copies with added plates. Gay, Amour, III, 753-4. This work remained unknown to David Murray "Lawyers' Merriments.

        Manuscrit intitulé Maladies des enfans par Mr. Astruc médecin consultant du Roy.

      S.l., (vers 1750), in 12, de 184pp. d'une belle écriture manuscrite avec une table in fine, pl. veau marbré époque, dos orné, bel exemplaire. Très intéressant manuscrit inédit du cours de pédiatrie du médecin Jean Astruc (1684-1766), professeur au Collège Royal, doyen de la faculté de médecine de Paris et médecin de Louis XV. Ce manuscrit, non daté (mais vers 1750), est signé R. Poyneau (?). C'est un exposé clair, Astruc traitant successivement, pour chaque affection, des symptômes, des causes, du diagnostic, du pronostic, du traitement. Des chapitres sont consacrés aux soins à apporter au nouveau-né, au sevrage, aux croutes de lait, à la teigne, à la maladie pédiculaire, au feu volage, à la suppuration, aux maladies de la bouche, à la dentition, à l'hydrocéphalie, à la coqueluche, aux hernies, aux écrouelles, au rachitis, etc. le tout avec une table des matières. Astruc n'a jamais publié ce cours magistral. Il existe une traduction anglaise d'un cours d'Astruc, intitulée A general and compleat treatise on all the diseases incident to children, publiée à Londres en 1746 ; mais ce traité ("issued from student's lecture notes") n'a pas été autorisé par Astruc (édition pirate) et la fidélité de la traduction n'a semble-t-il jamais été vérifiée. ¶ La bibliographie établie par P. Huard et M.J. Imbault-Huart note l'existence de trois manuscrits conservés en France sur les maladies des enfants (à Amiens, à Lille "daté de 1744" et à Troyes). Janet Doe, dans sa bibliographie de Jean Astruc n'a retrouvé sur le continent nord-américain aucun manuscrit sur les maladies des enfants. Quant à la provenance : il pourrait éventuellement s'agir de René Poyneau, chirurgien à Sanxay (Vienne) au XVIIIe siècle, mais en fait plus certainement de la Sage-femme du même nom Mme Poyneau, une des premières reçue devant le Collège de chirurgie et dont le nom figure dans l'Etat de la médecine pour 1777, avec pour date de réception 1749 et comme adresse "rue de l'Observance". Ainsi elle aurait suivi le cours d'Astruc juste avant 1749, ce qui correspond bien à la date du manuscrit. Rappelons que sous l'influence d'Angélique du Coudray (premier professeur pour les sages-femmes) et de François Mauriceau, à partir des années 1750 l'État ordonne que les sages-femmes aient une formation théorique et pratique de 2 ans avec une maîtresse sage-femme, un jury de deux maîtres chirurgiens validant leurs connaissances. ¶ cf. Huard P. Biographies médicales et scient., pp. 7-30 : « Astruc était un professeur né, extrêmement méthodique et didactique [...] ; il apportait le plus grand soin à la rédaction de ses leçons, très appréciées des étudiants. » - Doe J. Jean Astruc (1684-1766) : a biographical and bibliographical study, Journ. Hist. Med., 1960, 15, p.184

        Money and Trade Considered:

      Glasgow: R. & A. Foulis,, 1750. with a Proposal for Supplying the Nation with Money. First published at Edinburgh MDCCV. Octavo (161 × 93). Recent black leather, spine lettered gilt. Title and preliminary leaves soiled, occasional pale staining, paper flaws in blank margins of C2 and O2. Complete with the terminal advertisement leaf. First Foulis press edition, followed by another in 1760, originally published in 1705. A major work of the famous Scottish financial adventurer John Law (1671-1729). "To Law, the root of Scotland's economic problem lay in the supply of money and credit. It was true that Scotland possessed competitive advantages in trade, particularly in low labour costs (...) but the Scots had been unable to exploit their advantage because of a shortage of money (...) Law's solution was a scheme to introduce paper money on the security of the land" (John Robertson, The Case for the Enlightenment: Scotland and Naples 1680-1760, Cambridge 2005, p. 171-72).
